Line numbering test file

Where the html tags are incorrectly uppercase (should be lowercase) on last page, line numbers should only be there too. Not in the entire document.

Thank you

This would have to be an enhancement request right? Because I don't see the ability in Writer to only apply numbering to a certain section. It is either on or off.
